MOSCOW, January 21. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian must do everything to ensure stability in the Balkans, Russia’s Foreign Minister said on Tuesday.
“A lot of problems persist in the Balkans,” he noted. “I mean the situation in Kosovo, Bosnia and Herzegovina,” the minister added. “All these countries appeared after the disintegration of Yugoslavia that was a controversial event.” “This happened to a large extent under the influence of external factors,” Lavrov said.
“We must do everything to maintain stability in the Balkans,” the RF foreign minister stressed in this connection. “Russia strongly supports these efforts.”
Thus, Moscow supports the process of forging relationships between Belgrade and Pristina. This process, the minister said, should be conducted “with adherence to the international legal framework.”
